Love these boots! Got my normal size and they fit perfectly, yes it would have been easier to get them on if there had been a zipper, but I don't care, I love these boots! the leather is nice and the look it so unique and they are actually comfortable, my husband even said he liked them....if you like the style, you will LOVE these.

These boots are extremely annoying to put on and off. It wasn't until I tried them on with bare feet that the slid on and off without a problem, so I'll have to get some silky socks or just wear some knee highs! Or if you have someone who can pull them off for you - that works too. I had to walk in them in the snow for 45 minutes with them. They passed the test - they were comfortable, and handled the slushy snow quite well (luckily I sprayed them with a universal protector that night). The left boot felt smaller than the other (bigger foot) - but after walking in them for that amount of time - it's not that noticeable, so they give a little. I'm still giving them 5 stars even with the annoyance of getting in and out of them, because they are just that great.

I never write reviews but love these so much I had to. I just got them today and have already received so many compliments on them. My sister even ordered herself a pair this evening. They are really tall, which I like. I am 5'9" and they come right up to the back of my knee. I also have athletic calves and they fit! They are definitely tough to get on and off right now but I feel confident they will get easier as they get broken in. Love these boots!!!

Super cute boots! Had my doubts when I opened the box whether I could get my foot in them, but no problem with a nylon sock. I have a 15 and 1/2 calf and these boots fit with a little room to spare. I ordered 1/2 size up and they fit perfect. This is the first pair of tall boots I've ever bought that actually fit all around. These are keepers! Really, really happy with this purchase!

I looked at these boots several times before ordering and, in fact, tried some dressier tall black boots before taking the plunge. The others were not right so I gave these a shot. I am so glad that I did. True, they are not as dressy, but they have a great edgy feel. I have worn them with jeans and long skirts and get compliments on them every time I wear them. Everyone loves the cool brown fleur de lis pattern up the back. The leather is odd and a bit thin, but it looks fine and wears great. The shaft is a bit wider than most boots that I own but it is probably true to the stated measurement. They are very comfortable with no break in time at all. If I had to change one thing, it might be the seam up the front of the boot, but given how cool they are, I can live with it. Thank you Zappos for being so awesome!

I found these boots fit very true to size. I originally read the reviews saying they run small so I got half a size bigger and I had to return them for the correct size. I love the looks of them and the are casual and tough looking. They are great with skinnies. I am very happy with them.

I did not know what to think ordering boots online for the first time but I am so glad that I did. I want to wear these boots with everything. The black and little bit of brown makes them match just about everything. I get so many compliments on these boots, get them! They do come up a little higher on the calf than I am used to but I cannot get enough of these boots.

These boots are wonderful, the leather has a great rough finish to it. The brown and black color make it very versatile too. I would go up a size, as I found it to run small.

These boots rock! They are a really great black color without being too shiny or too vintage. At first I thought that I would have a really hard time without a zipped entry. To my surprise, not so much. The contrasting brown strip up the back is really cool looking. I thought the footsole felt ok. a bit stiff, maybe needing a gel insert. I would keep these boots, but they are just a bit less age appropriate for me. I am 55. If you are in your 20's or 30s and like slightly dressier motorcycle boots, but these.

I absolutely love these boots. They are very cute with tights and a skirt. Initially, the shafts of these boots were too tight for my calves, but I was able to work a little magic, and now they fit like a dream. They do not have much support for my high arches, but I think if I am going to wear them all day, I will throw some good insoles in.

I love these boots! Initially I ordered a 7.5. Could barely get them on. Returned them and got an 8. They feel big now, but they are so cute I don't care! I put an insole in there and all is well. I have had them 2 days and have received so many compliments. Buy these! But be warned, if you are under 5'5" they will come over your knee cap.

Love these boots. Very comfortable. I wear them with narrow leg jeans. The brown detail up the back really is cute. I get a ton of compliments on them. No zipper or anything though so sort of hard to get on.

These boots are unbelievably cool. I love the brown on the back - nice touch. I love how tall they are. I have longer than average legs (32" pant inseam) ...and these come up to my knees. Nice! Fit is perfect. I wear size 9.5, and these are just snug enough around my calves (15"). The black leather has nice finish...not so shiny and dressy like some others. These boots are seriously ready to kick something!

The boots are gorgeous. They are difficult to get on at the ankle area though and I had to use a plastic bag otherwise there is no way my feet would go in. I do nit think ordering half or a full size larger would have helped because the footbed seems roomy with my regular size. I am 5'8½" and they are two finger widths below the bend of my knee. I have 15" calves and they fit just fine and I could use skinny jeans with them. This is a good quality boot for the price and I am not sending them back because they look so good. I hope the leather stretches over time so I can get them on without the bag. Super fast shipping from Zappos!

These boots are very versatile and I love the look of them. The brown trim on the back is really cool. They're really comfortable as well and haven't required any breaking in. The only complaint I have about these boots is that they are really hard to get on your feet as there is no give, zippers or loops to help you pull them on. If I had loops to grab to pull them on, these boots would be perfect. But once they're on, they're awesome!

This boot has a great look and I get lots of compliments, I love it. It feels just the tiniest bit big, but I tried on the half size smaller and it didn't work. I wish it had some pull tabs, with as tall as it is and nothing to pull it can be a struggle to get the boot on, which I imagine why it's made a little roomier. Love though, not sending them back!

Cute boot! Got it on fine but the toes were too narrow for me. I am a true size 8 med. Maybe an 8 1/2 would work. Also I am tall and the boot came up to the bend in my knee. It didn't bother me at all as that is the "look." Detailing on the back of the boot is nice.

These boots do not have the circumference listed correctly as I measured calf with jeans on and actual boot is small. They are very difficult to put on. When your heel hits the back of inside boot heel, it is a tug of war. Once the boots were on, they were fine in length so I don't think ordering up is the answer. Absolutely cutest boots ever but they are going back as they don't fit.

A very cool-looking boot. I was looking for a boot that was not a dressy-look, like for church, but not all the way to biker boot. Something not too plain, but not teenager-bangled. This boot has awesome subtle style, but not so subtle that you can't tell until you are up close. It is a perfectly "me" look. Could be clean, could be edgy. Great style to this boot. Exactly the right balance. There are some problems though. This boot does not have a zipper and is quite difficult to get on and off. And I even have a narrow foot, so I imagine it might be almost impossible for a wide foot. I don't know, of course. I am able to tuck pants into the boots with no real problem, so I am not returning them, but be warned, no thick socks with these. I tried some fancy wool socks that were definitely on the thin side, and they got pulled so much as I inserted my foot, that the socks curled up my toes by the time my foot was in the boot! Then there was no wriggling the sock back into place! I had to go the rest of the time with curled toes. Ugh. So my advice is thin, dress-sock type socks for these. The other problem is that while they have been comfortable for walking, they do have an oddly loose heel area, which causes a tad of slip up and down as I walk. So far, they are still quite comfortable and stable. I walk several blocks in them at a time, but not miles. Also of note, the top of this boot is not stitched and capped off. It is unfinished cut leather. Like the leather was just cut off with scissors and left exactly like that. Not rough-looking, it is a very clean cut, but not that finished look of many boots. Just look closely at that before ordering. I really wish these boots had a zipper! But they are such a great looking boot that I am keeping them.

I'm unfortunately returning these boots today. When I found these to purchase I was super excited but when I got them home I found them to not be as nice as the photo portrays. They leather is even more dull than it appears and they fit more like rubber rain boots rather than nice leather boots. My calves were swimming in them. Not flattering at all. I wish I had a good review to share but unfortunately I do not. Maybe they'll work for you though but if you even remotely have skinny or toned calves, don't expect these boots to fit.

I should have believed previous customers reviews... I could NOT even get my foot in the darn boot! haha! I am a small girl too - 5'5 120lbs. I got my foot in to touch the bottom but couldn't push my foot in. There is no zipper. My calf even felt tight. I have never had a boot fit too tight on my calves. The style is adorable, yet I will be returning them.
